If you’re one of those women who has been going around singing “Let It Go” since November, then this post is most definitely for you!
Now, obviously, the main colors in this wedding have to be ice blue and white! That’s why I’m so happy I found so many great options for this theme with that ice blue accent available. But first, let’s start with the dress! This dress was a completely out-of-the-blue find.
I was actually in the process of searching for a different dress I’d seen, and found this on the way. I changed my mind immediately and went with this one. The glitter reflects the idea of snow perfectly! And while I’d wanted more of an a-line shape because of Elsa’s ice dress, I still think this fits the idea of “Frozen” so perfectly. It’s still girly and gorgeous, but not overly sexy, which you don’t want when basing your wedding off of a Disney movie! This dress is from Jim Hjelm‘s spring 2014 bridal collection. His dresses can be found at Ellie’s Bridal Boutique in Alexandria.
I’ll admit something about this bouquet: I had completely given up on the idea of finding a bouquet I liked for this theme that had blue flowers in it. I had settled on one that had white flowers and blue ribbons in it, which was gorgeous, but not really what I was looking for when I found this one from The Flower Cupboard in Williamsburg. I might take the green accents out of it to fit the theme, but I love the blue and white together to create that look and feel of ice. Personally, I’d also consider maybe tulips or peonies for the white flowers, because the closed nature of those flowers as opposed to the open nature of those in the bouquet now would do a much better job of showing off that theme a little bit more!
The thing I love best about these shoes from David’s Bridal is the little hint of that ice blue in the crystals. It’s barely noticeable so it doesn’t take any attention away, but it’s just enough of a hint to make it all work. And of course, all of the crystals add just enough more sparkle to make it all work. I considered having glitter shoes, but I really didn’t want them to start taking away from all of the pop of that dress. David’s Bridal has locations in Hampton, Norfolk, Richmond, Roanoke, Springfield and Woodbridge!
Now, normally, I don’t add a garter to these styles, but something told me that I should this time. And I was right because I found an absolutely perfect one from David’s Bridal. Perk: it can definitely be your something blue! I love that sparkle on it as well, it starts to match the shoes!
And, because snowflakes have to end up in this style somewhere, a beautiful hair clip from Etsy. It’s relatively cheap too, which just makes me love it even more! (Who here is on a budget?) It’ll also look gorgeous with a braid like Elsa’s, if you’re interested!
